A Tab is a Coveo Quantic or Coveo JavaScript Search Framework component that the end user can select to access a specific section of a search interface.

Among other things, selecting a tab may toggle the visibility of certain elements on the search page. It may also enforce a constant query expression (cq) so that any queries made from that tab only target a particular subset of items.

Coveo Machine Learning (Coveo ML) models need to be informed of tab selections to provide contextually relevant output.

When logging a usage analytics event, the origin level 2 should be the name or identifier of the tab from which the UA event originates.

Don’t confuse this with the Search API tab parameter.
